Daily Item – September 14, 2017
Auditor General Eugene DePasquale issued a damning report Thursday that concluded the state’s child protective services system is “broken.” “Children are being horribly abused and neglected in Pennsylvania every day,” DePasquale said. “In recent months we’ve heard of toddlers being kept in cages, newborns left home alone and starving school-aged children locked in filthy rooms.”
